Of nasi goreng (Should I just try to have his baby...)

That’s how it feels these days
To be broke / broken
In New Zealand / Singapore
First World Free / Not Really

Shasha Ali is an indigenous Malay activist whose chronic diasporic disorder, searching and dreaming for Asia Pacific social consciousness in decolonisation led to her returning to her motherland Singapura in January 2017 after 15 years living mainly in Auckland New Zealand. Shasha is currently re-immersing herself in subcultural hideaways, harnessing her self-taught poetry now in Bahasa Melayu, and working with Malay teenage runaways in Singapura.
